Coronavirus: Queensland premier ready for NRL talks after submission of plan


Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk confirmed she had received a plan from the NRL as it bids to restart its season next month.

Last week, Palaszczuk called on the NRL to send a detailed plan regarding its bid to resume its campaign on May 28.

With three clubs – Brisbane Broncos, North Queensland Cowboys and Gold Coast Titans – based in Queensland, Palaszczuk confirmed a plan had been submitted.

"I can confirm that a plan was submitted late on Friday evening," she told a news conference on Monday.

"It's been forwarded to [Queensland chief health officer] Dr [Jeannette] Young. I'm quite sure Dr Young will go through that plan.

"Then, we'll have conversations with the NRL and any other sporting code that's submitted a plan."

Australia has seen more than 6,700 confirmed cases of coronavirus, including 83 deaths.
